The Monthly Guild Meeting is at Germantown United Methodist Church, 2331 S. Germantown Rd. – Parking and Entrance are at the rear on West St.
The Guild meets on the 4th Tuesday of each month except in November and December.
The set up and social time will begin about 6:00 pm and the meeting will start at 6:30 pm.
There is an optional snack table at the meeting, please bring something to share and your own drink (water will be provided).
The meeting is also available via Zoom. The Zoom link will be emailed to all members on the morning of the meeting and can also be found on the Members Only page of this website.
Show and Tell is everyone’s favorite part of the meetings. If you cannot attend the meeting in person to share your projects, you can submit pictures and information about your projects to our guild email address email@example.com. Be sure to put Show and Tell in the subject line and include your name and any information you want to share. NOTE that we are no longer using JotForm. The deadline for submissions is the Sunday before the meeting.
Pictures shared online and in person will be uploaded to the Guild’s FB after each meeting.
$tash for Ca$h is also a monthly feature of our meetings. We welcome the treasures that you bring. These are items that need a new home and can go to a new home the night of our meeting. Members pay what they feel is appropriate but if the items are left at the end of the evening, please take them back home.

SEPTEMBER 26, 2023 - Camille M will present a program on our block of the month/ sew along. We hope Camille's program will encourage more of our members to participate in the block of the month/ sew along.
From Camille: Thank you to everyone who was able to attend the September Sew Together. We are off to a great start. It's not too late to get started. Remember you can do a couple of blocks or a whole quilt. Make them your own or use the pattern as is. The links are available here. I'll see everyone next month at the Sew Together.
UTQG was gifted a beautiful handmade quilt which appears to be some years old. The quilt is in good condition and will be made available to one lucky guild member. If you would like a chance to win this precious gift, please submit a bid in writing to Margaret S and Stacye R. Bids will be taken through the September meeting. The quilt will continue to be on display during the September meeting and will be awarded to the lucky recipient at the October meeting.
OCTOBER 24, 2023 - Wendy J and Sharon G will present a program on using interesting borders on quilts. If anyone has created interesting borders and would like to join our presentation, please let one of us know.
